Genre: Mystery/ Thriller

What did you like about the book? The story reads like a non-fiction accounting of a terrible event. Middle-aged American attorney Bill ten Boom is at a crossroads in his life. He has quit his job and has accepted a position with the International Criminal Court that prosecutes war crimes. For this he re-locates to The Hague. A witness has said that 400 Roma (Gypsies) were murdered by an unknown army some ten years previous in Bosnia. There are many ins and outs, conflicting stories and intriguing characters. It is not an easy assignment as some people are not what they seem and secrecy is tantamount.

Anything you did not like about this book? Not a thing.

To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend this to those who like mysteries about war crimes, foreign intrigue and a character searching for identity.

Who should buy this book? Public libraries

Where would you shelve it? Adult audiobooks

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? If you are a Scott Turow fan, then yes.
